Photoshop has us...

And here is the proof.

Adobe Creative Suit editions

We’re at the stage when we can’t go or do a lot of things without it, and we certainly wouldn’t be able to create websites if there was no Photoshop (I can’t even imagine my life without these things), but learning Photoshop is not the easy task (I think all pro designers will agree).

The guys who became really good in Photoshop using can really say there’s no alternative, each and every new version is a blessing for us so we can sacrifice a lot in order to use it (just look at the image above).

Looks like that’s all though it took some time to write this article and find all these brushes so you can brush your design making it more unique and... POWERFUL! Sorry. That was just Lex Luthor (he helped me to write this article), but he’s already leaving, right Lex?

So now, when he’s gone I can share a secret with you: he’ll never defeat you because you have the access to the secret weapon making your design much more powerful than his.

I’m talking of course about Divine Elemente (a PSD to WordPress tool). (Don’t waste your time and show Luthor that you, unlike him, will be victorious forever).
